Tiny Dancer

ballet collage

This week marked Sunny’s ballet review. She’s been taking ballet for about 2 years, and every review I am more impressed with the effort these little ones put into their work.

IMG_3979To give you a frame of reference, here is a picture from Gracie’s review when she was two years old. (you can follow us on instagram @wherewilloughbyat)

Yep, she’s growing up. If ever I was in denial- I can compare that photo to this one…


It’s a bit difficult to photograph one child when the other one is sitting on your lap, but I think you’ll get the general idea, of how perfect the practice of ballet is for my tiny dancer.

He is a fan of his sister- but every man has his limits.

For her part my Sunshine girl is a beautiful little dancer. I’m happy that she has a practice that teaches her discipline and patience. It’s not easy to point those toes, and keep your spine straight, and listen to a class that uses foreign terms; but she’s doing it. She doesn’t yet see ballet as an expression of herself, but I think in time she will. I hope she keeps dancing long into adulthood. I hope she looks back at these photos and sees that she’s been a shining star her whole life.
